What's Included

This workshop will help you get out of your head and into the scene by showing you tricks to thinking less and doing more. Take a journey to some of your most free and liberated scene work through over commitment, big physical choices, and unapologetic emotions and characters. Come remember what it is like to not know enough about improv to be hesitant or judgmental. Lyndsay Hailey performs and teaches “impro” all over the world. Austria, Australia, Belgium, England, France, London, Scotland, Poland, and other places she’s forgetting like Chicago and New York. She is famous...ridiculously famous in Warsaw, Poland, but can’t sell out a workshop in LA. Would she have really been flown all over the world if she wasn’t good at teaching? I guess maybe, she knows some bad teachers who have been flown places. Lyndsay screen tested with SNL, toured with internationally with The Second City Touring Company, and continues to tour her sketch shows, 30% Chance of Hailey and The Lyndsay Hailey Variety Hour in LA, NYC, CHICAGO and Internationally. 30% Chance of Hailey, was awarded the Chicago Tribune’s Critic’s Choice Award, calling it “one of the most inventive solo productions in years.” Movie wise, she’s working on it - but has been in two features, Close Quarters and Uncle Kent 2, which won Viewer’s Choice at SXSW. Lyndsay is also nice, and I should know because I am Lyndsay.
